    You beat me to it with Myra

    1) Dorothy Donegan
    2) Mike Westbrook
    3) Myra Melford

    There surely are more, but Dorothy & Mike will stay up there for me.

    Three, eh? Ok:

    1. Chick Corea. Mainly earlier stuff. Now He Sings Now He Sobs is maybe my favorite jazz piano trio record. And I love his solo original compositions like the Delphi or Children's Songs records. And of course his electric playing with Miles's band.

    2. Kevin Hays. Buy his record Live At Small's. It's worth it for his version of "Cheryl" alone. No, seriously. Monster. Probably the only jazz piano trio performance which I personally feel has totally assimilated Jarrett's trio thing - and surpassed it. "Cheryl," Live At Small's. Go get it. And check this Hays out for a small taste of what he can do:

    3. Richie Beirach. His solo piano recordings Sunday Songs and Self-Portraits are sublime.





    ...Cecil Taylor and Monk were very close to being above...

    Hey, another Beirach fan!!!


    I haven't heard Sunday Songs. I've been meaning to track that one down for a while. But I do have Sunday Song (no "s"), a Japanese import duo LP from '75 with Frank Tusa on bass.

    internets, have you heard Continuum? It's probably my favorite Beirach solo record. Like most of Beirach's stuff, it's out-of-print. But it can be found on emusic and elsewhere as a download. It's worth seeking out!

    Cool Hutch! Yes - Beirach is a special musician. And I don't know how I haven't checked out Continuum. I just checked out some clips and will be getting it soon. Thanks!

    One great place to start is his Ondas album (ECM, 1982).
